England have won only one test in last 17 matches that they have played under Root's captaincy.

Joe Root says he needs to go on as England skipper in spite of the West Indies incurring one more series rout on his side. Britain lost the third Test in Grenada by ten wickets on Sunday (March 27), proceeding with a terrible run which has seen them win only one, and lose eleven, of their last 17 matches.

Root has managed four series routs in their last five rubbers and England were likewise 2-1 down against India the previous summer before the last Test was deferred. However, he is determined that he needs to stay as skipper notwithstanding his group’s new terrible displays and regardless of calls for him to be supplanted, including by previous England chief Nasser Hussain.

“I think I’ve made it very clear toward the beginning of this game and all through this visit, I’m exceptionally energetic about attempting to take this group forward,” Root told BT Sport. “I don’t believe it’s always in your grasp totally however as I said, I feel like the gathering are especially behind me. We’re doing a ton of truly beneficial things. We simply need to transform that into results.”

The choice to remain in the post might be removed from Root’s hands, obviously. Prior to England’s next Test task, against New Zealand in June, the group ought to have another Director of Cricket and lead trainer and those delegated may choose to take the captaincy off Root. The test in that situation would be the absence of reasonable options in contrast to the Yorkshireman.

Root asserted England had played some “splendid” cricket during the series and said he felt that the batting line-up, so frequently the justification for the group’s downfalls lately, had gained ground. That is regardless of England experiencing three batting falls in their six innings during the series, remembering for the third day in Grenada when they were lost eight for 101.

“Promptly there’s dissatisfaction at how it’s done in light of the fact that all through this series I think we’ve played some great cricket,” Root said. “I think we’ve shown what we’re fit for collectively. I thoroughly consider we’ve developed the initial two games as a batting bunch, we’ve shown large walks in that area and shown what we are prepared to do and afterward yesterday has truly let us down.

“It’s a significant day inside the series and we simply didn’t face it alright. Then tragically you track down us in this position where we’ve wound up missing out on the series, in which we’ve played such a lot of splendid cricket.”

As far as up-sides, Root highlighted upgrades in the group’s mentality and said the visit had been valuable for allowing England an opportunity to check out at a few new players, as Saqib Mahmood and Alex Lees. “I thought the demeanor all through the entire thing’s been splendid. In that regard we’ve most certainly made huge upgrades, and that needs to proceed,” Root said.

“There are so many beneficial things that we can detract from this. Obviously we came here to win and we’ve not, and that is baffling, it’s frustrating. Yet, assuming we will continue learning and continue to develop collectively, and in the event that we will begin winning, we must keep that methodology.

“We must continue to do the stuff that we did so well the first couple of games and in quite a while of this one. I think one thing we have done, we’ve studied a few new players, there have been two debutants come in and show guarantee, they’re toward the beginning of their excursion now and that is extremely invigorating. So you know, we will remove things from it, however today’s baffling.”
